Those interested in a city gay holiday will find that these metro areas provide numerous options that are sure to please travelers interested in a lively nightlife and a plethora of entertainment, dining and shopping options from which to choose. If you want to include skiing or snowboarding into your gay travel plans, you will be pleased to know that there are various ski resorts on South Island and North Island, which makes it easy to take a day trip to the mountains between sightseeing tours, cultural events or visiting New Zealand’s smaller islands.
A gay holiday to New Zealand can be focused on beach-going and fun in the sun, skiing and snowboarding, or amazing outdoor adventures for couples, friends or families.
